Shared Calendars / Room Lists and automatically forcing them to users based on Security Group Membership RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good morning all,

    I need some help achieving the following in our Exchange 2013 Environment.  First off, we have Exchange 2013, but all our clients have Outlook 2010.

    Here's what I would like to be able to do:

    1) create/manage public calendars / rooms in exchange 2013

    2) force these shared public calendars / rooms to users' calendars who are members of particular security groups

    3) give edit permissions / "booking" permissions for the shared calendars so select users are able to make changes to the shared calendars, as well as accept/deny requests to "book" shared room calendars

    Any one got any resources they can give to point me in the right direction?

    I have already created two mailbox room resources, and have them set up in a room list in AD.  But need to know the above as far as creating a shared calendar for events, and forcing these calendars / room lists out to users based on security group membership.

    I don't want my users to have to know how to add a shared calendar...that would be a nightmare explaining.  I just want it to show up.

    Any help on this is greatly appreciated, thank you!

  • 1) I recommend using Room Mailboxes for resource calendars because it just works better.

    2) This is a standard feature of a Room Mailbox.

    3) You're pretty specific here, but I think this is also more or less available with a Room Mailbox combined with folder rights.

    I don't know any way to just make them "show up".  You'll have to teach them.  Well written instructions can work wonders.
